Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that because of global warming, the heroes are in peril from rising waters and they are stalked by somewhat scary-looking underwater creatures. There is comic slapstick violence (the acorn-chasing muskrat is squashed, splatted, attacked by a vulture, etc.), a sad memory of a mother's death, and a flood, and the tiger's fear of water is rendered in a couple of "nightmare" images (his point of view underwater, with big music). The film includes some very mild language ("crap," "ass," "pervert").

Sexual Content

Manny seeks a mate, with some allusions made to preventing the extinction of the species.

Violence

Some potentially frightening imagery and music to show the threat of the melting ice (cracking ice, falls down mountainsides, plummets into water); two toothy creatures underwater hunt and grab at heroes periodically; a scene showing a mother woolly mammoth frozen as her child leans into the mother's now-abstracted form is sad; a group of vultures perform elaborate musical number about "" and "" tiger must jump into water that scares him to save his friends; flooding at end might be worrisome for young viewers with memories of recent Louisiana and Mississippi flooding.

Language

Some comic phrases might inspire imiitation ("suck air"); film includes a fart joke, "ass," "crap," and "pervert".

Social Behavior

Heroes quarrel then come together to triumph over climate change (coming flood) and attendant dangers (underwater creatures).
